Overview of Services


Girl Be Heard’s educational program is designed for middle and high school students and taught by our Girl Be Heard Teaching Artists, senior collective members who have been through our program and received special training in Girl Be Heard pedagogy. The curriculum encourages young women to explore gender, race and class issues through theatre and performance.

Our curriculum develops writing, speaking, critical thinking and analytic skills as participants are encouraged to think about issues close to them and place them in a broader context. This approach makes learning more accessible and leads to better self-esteem and stronger performance in school.

This is a fee-based residency program in middle and high schools offered over 30-week sessions as an in-school course or after school program. For details, see Girl Be Heard Curriculum
